When somebody suggests a historic property, I always approach the idea with both some interest and a little trepidation. Sure, I love a beautiful old historic building with wonderful woodwork, high ceilings and a charm and ambiance you can't find in a modern hotel. But I also wonder what else I am signing myself up for. Is the air-conditioning going to work? Is the bathroom going to be about as big the one on the plane? In other words, what's that hidden downside lurking behind the elegant facade?
If there is a downside to Wentworth Mansion, I certainly didn't find it while I was there. The rooms are absolutely huge with all the modern amenities like modern A/C, internet, separate shower and tub and so forth. Our room even had a little den with a separate 2nd television that you could close off from the main room. The property is in a quiet residential area, just far enough away from the main downtown that it is quiet at night but still incredibly convenient to everything downtown. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. The restaurant connected to the hotel is also one of the finest restaurants in the city (which is saying a lot in Charleston) and guests eat a full (and excellent) breakfast there for free every day. You get all this in a stunning historical property with amazing, period architectural details.
I took my wife here for our 10th anniversary and we had a wonderful time. This is a great choice for someone looking for a romantic getaway.
